That stuff includes finally assembling 2 of my larger 4Ground 15mm buildings, painting some miniatures including some "proof of concept" figs testing out 15mm multi cam camouflage, and putting some 8th Army British desert rat units together, and also assembling some of my Battlefront "Potecknov's Bears"!! The multi-cam test shots and the 8th Army Brits I'll cover in later posts...
|4Ground Minis 15mm Townhouses or Shops or whatever. They look good for a rustic, West European village.|
|4Ground minis shop. 15mm Soviet Naval Infantry for scale, escaping out the back door after rummaging through the kitchen. More on him later.|
|Still have some more buildings to assemble but all in all the village is starting to take shape.|
|Soviets pouring over the inner German border!|
My plan is to base a Company, or 12 stands, of these guys for use in Crossfire games or something else, including my Ponyri Station project, where Soviet paras reinforce the defenders in the town at some point in the battle. In that game, each stand would be a platoon, but I'm ok with that.
|I think the blue turnbacks and facings on the brown coat look cool. Not sure how accurate they are for Pennsylvania militia but they look good anyways.|
Now the moment you've all been waiting for - the first platoon assembled of "Potecknov's Bears" who actually look pretty sweet! These are really amazing models here!
|Probably about 10 minutes to assemble each tank. Not bad at all. The pieces fit together perfectly, not like those shermans from the Open Fire box!!!!!|
|TC in the commander's hatch.|
|Still need their ditch bar, IR searchlights, fuel barrels, and a few other odds and sods.|
|The wife's cutting board! Don't tell her!|
